A "very generous donation" by two Uist women has enabled the Western Isles Community Care Forum to offer a loan wheelchair to the Uist community.

The community wheelchair, which will be free to use, has been made possible thanks to Ani George and Marie Branagan.

The wheelchair is available to borrow for those with slightly impaired mobility to attend an event, have a hospital appointment, or go on holiday. It will also be available to existing wheelchair users if theirs needs to go for repairs.

Further information on the service can be obtained by calling Catherine MacDougall on 07487 540173 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
